FAN: Thanks for being the woman who showed me that science wasn’t just for boys.

In fact, I think one of the greatest gifts of the X-Files is that the lead male character is irrational and nonsensical. It has been done since, especially in the genre, but it was the first show I saw that challenged those roles.
So, no questions, just plain old thanks from a long time fan and (now) woman of science.
